Day Nursery

Your local family run Childrens Day Nursery

The Big Top Nursery - Waddesdon

Our day nursery is set in the beautiful village of Waddesdon.  Set across 2 floors, we care for children aged 3 months - 4 years.   The nursery is open 51 weeks a year, excluding public and Bank Holidays and the week between Christmas and New Year.

Our Baby room is situated on the ground floor and offers lots of space for babies to play and explore.  The room is laid out in different play spaces to allow babies access to different activities from construction, roll play, sensory growth, messy and tactile play, as well as soft spaces for listening to stories.  Our Baby room offers a sleep area with both raised cots and soft floor mats for our babies who nap at different times throughout the day. The babies have access to their own garden space, as well as having the opportunity to play in our wonderful main garden area.

Set on the first floor, our 2-3’s and 3-4’s year old space is equipped with all the resources we use to support your child as they learn through play and exploration.  We offer muliple play and soft spaces for construction, roll play, fine tuning motor skills, messy and creative activities as well as reading, singing and relaxation.  We provide toileting and changing facilities for those children who are toileting independently and those in nappies or working on their toilet training.  During the summer months, our pre-school aged children re-locate to the marquee area where they then have the opportunity to further develop their skills in readiness for school.

All children have access to our amazing garden space which provides children the opportunity to run, play and explore natural resources.  We can provide plenty of shelter for all weather play in our gardens.

Our Chef provides nutritious and freshly cooked meals for all of our children, and we are able to cater for a range of dietary requirements and needs.  Our Children also enjoy snacks and have access to fresh drinking water throughout the day.
